Thank You dallas for your response.
I believe every injured federal employee uses their FEHB Plan until they accept and realize they are legitimately FECA Entitled and that the FECA will able legitimately injured federal employees who manage to learn what kind of fruit a "Repetitive Stress Injury" will produce when it matures and becomes "Ripe."
I know of people that thought their repetitive stress injury had "no relationship" to the nature of the work they did, day in and day out for enough years, that they finally noticed "something going on to their body," but simply because they didn't realize the relationship at work, that they weren't FECA Entitled.
Unions should become busy educating members and holding Seminars, so members won't possibly lose their jobs at a time in their life when they become so injured they cannot pass a physical to work anywhere.
I have never been against Unions and NEVER will be but why they stay away from the FECA in unbelievable to me as it always was while I was a member and I was a Teamster way before I ever belonged to a Postal Labor Union.
I also used my FEHB Plan until I became FECA Informed, which wasn't for very long when I experienced my first Accepted: Traumatic / CA-7 injury, 35 years ago.

Thank You Very Much and come see me at "FECA HELP."

/m30472 the post office does not have you as a "RTR employee"

RTR stands for retirement, thrift saving, reduction in force.

every career postal employee has this in their file.

for your injury what for did you file, ca1 or ca2?

Hi all I file for OWCP/Dol last December, it was denied in July, 2016 & is in the appeals process, In August, 2016 I filed Disability retirement for an illness that was aggravated by work & actions of supervisor, I have been of work for over a year, I had leave that ended on April 2nd, 2016, today on my eopf file, they have me as a RTR employee, what does this mean? Does anyone know how long this process may take?

Jonnie- A concussion does not always show up on scans. A neurologist will diagnose you based on symptoms and office tests. Go see your own neurologist for all the symptoms.

Advice please: cleaning lady was mopping my lobby floor yesterday. She was a good 10 ft away from the doorway I waliked through. The mop was 10 ft defined me. In short, I had no idea the floor was even wet. Feet out from under me, flat on my back I went. I hit my head pretty hard asurface well. Became nauseous, and my vision was blurred. When I told my pm, he ignored me. By now it was my lunch. Came back and told him I needed to go to doc, he started yelling at me. Said when I told him I fell, he thought it was a customer. Went to doc, got scanned for concussion. He said scans seemed to show no concussion. I've had 3 neck surgeries. 4th/5th fusion. I would like to have my neck and back looked at as well. This morning,btw, I can barely move. Extremely stiff and sore. Any advice this forum can give would be greatly appreciated. Yes, I got a ca-1.

I have been represented by Jeff on 2 occasions. The first went to the ECAB & was won. The 2nd has been waiting for a decision with ECAB for 19 months. He knows OWCP but can be a little difficult to deal with. I would still recommend him. You may want to check out the OWCP classroom before you decide.

Anyone have any feedback on the following attorneys ...Thomas S.Harkins or Jeff Zeelander? Can anyone guide me on how to research their success in Federal compensation cases ?

sorry for the cross post if you've seen the one on PEN

My OWCP doc of the last 3.5 years is retiring :( she suggested I see another Doctor in their practice (they're both family docs; I on pain management meds that she prescribes for me as the back doc and surgeon said nothing else could be done for me and the family doc could prescribe and monitor me). Do I need to have a letter from my current doc transferring my care over to another doc in the same practice? I am hoping the new doc and I mesh well as their billing office has finally got the hang of billing for my OWCP appointments.

part 2: If I have to get a letter and am transferred over to her and we don't mesh, am I able to transfer again? Or do I have to wait a certain amount of time before transferring Docs?
